Compulsive Sexual Behaviours – How often is it presenting in your therapy room?
We hear from therapists around the country that even though it might not be the presenting problem, compulsive sexual behaviours are being disclosed in therapy. It isn’t just the person feeling the compulsion, but more partners coming forward looking for support after feeling the trauma and shock of discovery. Compulsive sexual behaviours don’t discriminate based on gender or sexual orientation. Yet seeking support may vary based on one’s perceptions of social messages and acceptability. The psychological, relational, and social impacts are very real for all impacted by it. Psychosexual therapists are also now adding prolonged pornography use to the list of associated and/or causal factors in erectile dysfunction, a trend seen more frequently in young men.
Gaining Confidence and Competence to Work with Compulsive Sexual Behaviours
Dr Thaddeus Birchard & Associates’s Diploma in Sex Addiction Therapy is accredited by Middlesex University, approved by The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC), and is approved for 69 CPD hours with The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). We blend theory, therapeutic tools, and practical application to give you greater confidence and competence in working with your clients around their experiences of sex addiction and compulsive sexual behaviours.
Client Access to Therapeutic Support
The number of ATSAC Qualified Members specialised in working with compulsive sexual behaviours is still very small. Clients in more remote areas report long waiting lists or having to travel large distances to find a therapist capable of providing support. Our London Diploma course is the longest-standing of it’s kind in the UK. To help therapists in the North and in Europe access this training, we also provide the Diploma course in Edinburgh, Scotland.
